DECEMBER 17, 2013


9 N. Clinton Avenue, Bay Shore, NY 11706.


CHRISTMAS MAGIC - a night where families in need have their pictures taken, are given a hot meal and then Santa arrives and the children receive gifts from Santa.  


OFFICIAL Long Island Help-Portrait ANNOUNCEMENT!

Help-Portrait shoots will begin for us on Wed., Dec. 17 at 4:30 pm.


Our group needs to begin assembling between at 3:45 and 4:00 pm. 


For each family having a portrait taken we need to collect an address and a phone number so that the church hospitality center can reach them for photo pick-up.


Need to know what equipment and photographers will be on site.


As always,  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your support. & Happy Holidays!

Joanne - Just checking in to see if you got my email with the link to the images. I sent it on Wednesday, but I did not see that you visited the gallery to download the images. Let me know if I need to send it to a different email address.

Thanks to you Joanne for coordinating this Help-Portrait each year. It really was a great time. I will have all the pictures to you by later today.

Thanks to everyone who volunteered yesterday.

Great job last night!

Thank you to Mark for bringing all of his amazing gear, AnnMarie for keeping us organized, and Saul for sticking around to help me shoot the kids with Santa.

We made 24 families very happy last night! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the Long Island Help-Portrait TEAM!
